Ocasio-Cortez unveils her 'Green New Deal'
by Josh Siegel
 | February 07, 2019 08:09 AM



Democrats introduced a "Green New Deal" resolution Thursday that calls for a dramatic shift in the nation's energy system to fight climate change.

The nonbinding resolution, introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., contains many of the same core tenets promised by progressives eager to push Democrats further to the left on climate policy heading into the 2020 presidential election.

The resolution contains several goals that can't be turned into actual programs since it is nonbinding, and thus serves as a messaging document more than a policy proposal. NPR posted the resolution online Thursday.

It calls for "net-zero greenhouse gas emissions" by 2030, but in a subtle shift that could expand support to centrist Democrats, it also allows for noncarbon-emitting energy sources that aren’t wind and solar power to reach the goal. Progressives had originally promised 100 percent renewable energy and banning fossil fuels.

It urges the elimination of carbon-based fuel all the major segments of the economy — electricity, manufacturing, buildings, transportation, and even agriculture — all while ensuring a "fair and just transition for all communities and workers."

The resolution proposes massive public investments in clean energy infrastructure on things such as light rail and weatherized buildings.

If we are all going to die in 12 years should't this dim bulb idiot be doing more than a non binding resolution?

I'm sure Willie Green is jumping up and down over a certain aspect of this proposal.
"Last but not least, I was a Republican, a Reagan Republican. Still am. Not a Tea Party Republican. Not a Breitbart Republican. Not a talk radio or Fox News Republican. Not an isolationist, protectionist, immigrant-bashing, scapegoating, get-nothing-useful-done Republican. Not, as I am often dismissed by self-declared "real" conservatives, a RINO, Republican in Name Only. I'm a Reagan Republican, a proponent of lower taxes, less government, free markets, free trade, defense readiness, and democratic internationalism."

She just thinks we're gonna spend all this money and put up windmills, solar panels, dams, and geothermal and the electricity is going to start gushing everywhere.

In reality the places where these things are even practical are limited and quickly become marginal.

A far better approach would be to improve distribution systems and usage efficiency to use what we have better not even considering it would be funded by a bogus tax scheme.

A Democrat Senator from a coal- and natural gas-producing state isn't terribly impressed with her plan.

Senator Joe Manchin: ‘Green New Deal’ Is Raw Deal
Feb 8, 2019
Steven Allen Adams

CHARLESTON — West Virginia’s senior U.S. senator has a lot to say about coal and natural gas, and his new committee position will give him a platform to have his voice heard.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., spoke to attendees by video chat at the West Virginia Press Association’s annual Legislative Breakfast Thursday in Charleston.

In December, Manchin was named as the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. ...

Manchin said he plans to push back against any legislation that creates what some call a “Green New Deal.” A joint resolution introduced Thursday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., calls for switching to 100 percent renewable energy.

“It’s people who want to stop anything having to do with fossil fuels,” Manchin said. “The Green New Deal, you’ve heard about that? That shuts everybody down. They think in 10 years we can be down to no gas, no coal, no oil, no nothing. That is not feasible, not practical, and it’s not going to happen.”

According to Manchin, 50 percent of the energy generated by India and China is coming from coal-fired utilities. Until new technologies are developed to make coal cleaner to burn, Manchin said there is very little leverage the U.S. has to influence the behavior of serial polluters. ...

As Rush often points out; if the media made you, the media can break you – in fact, it’s the only thing that can end your reign as the latest media darling.

The time for breaking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will arrive soon enough, once she’s outlived her usefulness to the establishment/media swamp. In 3, 2, 1...

How Ocasio-Cortez's "Green New Deal" Almost Imploded On Its First Day

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-08/how-ocasio-cortezs-green-new-deal-almost-imploded-its-first-day

@To-Whose-Benefit?
And rightly so - It is ridiculous. And impossible.
These bunny-hugger save-the-world dingbats are all for sending the world back to living in grass huts, sans fire, of course.

Funny how they think like that. Plop any one of em out in the sticks up here with 5 feet of snow and see how they fare. Fleeting wisdom would dawn, just prior to lips turning blue.
